For a First-Rate Democracy, Pass on Ranked-Choice Voting

In 2021, I used ranked-choice voting for the first time in our local election in Salt Lake City. It was different, shiny and new.

But overall, ranked-choice voting is like eating an apple with half a worm in it. The more you learn, the worse it really is.

When it comes to participation, access, fairness, and the importance of our elections, it’s clear that ranked-choice voting is nothing more than a second-best option. Ranked-choice voting turns winners into losers, it silences the voice of people who don’t have time to research every candidate, and it reduces confidence in our elections at a time when we need more of it.

At FGA, we don’t just talk about changing policy—we make it happen.

By partnering with FGA through a gift, you can create more policy change that returns America to a country where entrepreneurship thrives, personal responsibility is rewarded, and paychecks replace welfare checks.
